Douglas Isles, Investment specialist, Platinum Asset Management 
FFA, MA Math (Trinity College, Cambridge)
An actuary by training, Douglas first joined Platinum in 2003 as an investment analyst, having spent some time at the Commonwealth Bank as a product actuary and, prior to that, as an investment manager at Aegon Asset Management in Edinburgh. 
Mathematical prowess was not Douglas’ only forte. His gift for communication and his convivial nature soon earned him the additional responsibility of handling presentations to advisers and clients.
Douglas left Platinum in 2008 to relocate to Singapore where he made a significant contribution to developing Standard Chartered Bank’s equity broking business.
Having re-joined Platinum in 2013 as an investment specialist, Douglas now dedicates himself to serving as a bridge between Platinum’s investment team and the financial advisory community.
